Summary: I've been using this camera for over a year now, alternating it with my iPhone and a Canon EOS 50D. Somehow this camera works nicely as an alternative to both of my other options; I tend to chose depending on the occasion.
Summary: Basically, I don't like digital cameras. However, the demise of Kodachrome forced my hand. A small fortune in Nikon SLR and darkroom equipment was sadly retired. The feature-laden HS10 is an excellent camera that relieves me from hauling a ton of interchangeable lenses.
Summary: Had this camera about 2 weeks now..I must say I love it...One camera, one lens, 24mm to 720mm shots with the twist of the lens...have taken clear shots of subjects over a half mile away and been able to see pretty good detail. Adjustments takes some getting used too.
Summary: The instruction manual leaves a lot to be desired. Jpegs are superb. RAW images show considerable distortion if you process them in anything other than the RAW File Converter application that is supposed to be supplied on the CD that comes with the camera, but wasn't.
Summary: I've been using the camera for about a month now. As long as you are not expecting DSLR image quality or performance this camera is a good value. If you are the type who keeps the camera on "auto" all the time you won't get the best image quality.
Summary: just upgraded from Fuji 100fs. I like this camera a lot. Have powerfull lens, manual zoom, tons of settings, viefinder it one of the bad point, but dont use much, also manual zoom, kind of difficult. Macros habilities are superb.
Summary: Overall I am very pleased with the camera. Battery use is the main drawback, it is very battery hungry! I did have to switch off the evf/lcd switch for the screen, it is too sensitive and switches when anything passes in front of it. The only other problem is the on/off toggle switch.
My personal pick of the "super zoom" cameras currently available. Not perfect, but VERY GOOD

Summary: After researching the "super zoom", non-DSLR cameras I felt that some of this camera's features outweighed the areas where it might not have been the best in its class. Probably the three major advantages to me are the ability to zoom via the zoom ring (rather than buttons), the long zoom range with...
Summary: The things I like about it are: - It has a 30X zoom lens with manual controls and lens stabilization (anti -shake) - It uses regular (or rechargeable) AA batteries. I was trying to avid propriety batteries and chargers - The 3 inch LCD screen tilts up or down to let you take picture overhead or...
Summary: I bought my camera back in May. I did a lot of research previously, and couldn't wait to get this one. I was waiting for the price to go down, but was getting anxious. First thing I did was to take the disc into Office store and have the manual printed and spiral bound.
